Battle Hardened - January 21st

The path to the biggest stage in Flesh and Blood TCG Organized Play begins with a Professional Tournament Invitation (PTI), and one of the best places to secure these prized assets is Battle Hardened.

Teams will have the opportunity to battle it out for their share of 3,000 USD in cash prizes, exclusive Battle Hardened series playmats to the Top 4, Gold Foils to the Champions, and coveted Professional Tournament Invites (PTIs) to the top finishing team.

PTIs can be used to enter any Professional level tournament (including Pro Tours and the World Championship) and do not expire, whereas invitations from the in-store ProQuest series are only valid for their associated Pro Tour event.
